We stopped by here on our way from Oban to Edinburgh. We stopped and just took in the scenery. It is perfect to do by automobile because there are many places to pull over to look. There are little parking lots near the scenic areas. There was a bagpiper playing at one of the stops, of course, so that was... More

Wow having never driven through Glen Coe we did not know what to expect, as we rounded the corner the views were absolutely breathtaking. Will definitely visit again and do so walking.

lovely scenery even though it was raining when we drove through. We passed by some waterfalls along the road. Lots of walkers, looked like it would have been a nice place to stop, but we were on route so didn't have the time.

If you aren't an avid history reader, Glen Coe looks like a paralyzingly beautiful glen in which to feast your eyes. I was not aware that our bus would only be stopping for a 5 minute picture taking. I was most disappointed in this, because this area is so steeped in history it makes your mind fuzz over. Prior to... More

Every time I visit Glen Coe it takes my breath away. It doesn't matter what the weather is like either. Even on cloudy days it has a really moody feel to it. Pictures don't do it justice. It's a truly majestic place. My only problem with it is that wherever you stop, if a bus load of tourists isn't already... More

Absolutely fantastic, the most beautiful of all the glens we saw on our trip to Scotland (drove 1500 km, over 2 weeks). Had also possibility to climb Bauchaille Etive Mor and bag a couple of Munros on the way. Defenately a must!

This is a must do! Driving through Glen Coe and along the countryside and mountains was my absolute favorite thing I did in Scotland. The landscape is simply stunning. Pictures can't capture its true majesty. It's a long, slow drive, so set aside an entire afternoon, pack snacks, have your camera ready and get comfortable. We would stop often for... More

We drove north from Loch Lomond. As we approached the Highlands each valley and mountain seemed more spectacular than before. The final drive into Glen Coe (cue 'Skyfall' music) and the place itself were spectacular, brilliant, (awesome if you are an American) and the highlight of the holiday. We stopped in the pass in one of the parking areas, saturated... More

Hard to put into words the scenery driving thru Glen Coe. The mountains, the greenery, waterfalls.... simply stunning. We rented a vehicle in Glasgow and drove north via A82 and stopped frequently for photos. A photographers dream! Highest recommendation!
